Holy Crud, Comcast Does Something Nice Without Being Shamed Into It!

While I’ve been lucky that today’s ice storm in the Mid-Atlantic area has not (yet) taken out my power, many thousands of people around Philadelphia have no electricity going to their homes right now. And the wireless devices they’ve been using to stay updated on the outages (and share photos of downed power lines on Facebook) are quickly running out of battery power. This is the part of the story where Comcast does something nice.

The Times Herald of Montgomery County, PA, reports that numerous Comcast offices in the Philly ‘burbs will be letting area residents come in and recharge battery-powered devices during office hours.

If you’re without power and live in the area, below are the offices that are extending this offer, along with their hours:

• NORRISTOWN: 1000 Sandy Hill Road (Hours: Mon – Fri 9:30 a.m. to 7 p.m.; Sat – 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.; Sun – Closed)
